Increased vaccination means that Norway can tolerate higher infection rates without shutting down again, the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) noted on Tuesday.
“As more people are protected with vaccines, we can tolerate more infections in society.
“We are still in a situation where we can not have infection roaming free in society, but now we are considering the type of relief for the next reopening step,” department director Line Vold at the FHI told TV 2.
As more people are vaccinated, fewer people become seriously ill and die. That means that the reopening can continue even if the infection increases, Vold explained.
